  • Can I change the color of the highlight?
    • Yes. Yes you can.

Known BUGs

  • Google - the extension works the first time you visit but if you change your search term or switch pages it no longer works.
  • Extension popup - once you open the popup you have to click anywhere on the window to fill the color you previously selected on the color picker.
